We process raw biomass of animal origin into valuable and essential ingredients like fats and specialties for various industrial and technical applications. Our materials are natural, recyclable and sustainable.
Some of the world’s most exclusive fine bone china – known for its whiteness and translucency as well as its strength and chip resistance – is manufactured from our bone ash, produced according to strict customer specifications. Bone ash makes up approximately fifty per cent of the formulation for bone china. Bone china is sometimes referred to as ‘china’ or ‘English porcelain’.
Illustrating the wide application potential of residuals, we also supply bone ash products to the non-ferrous metals casting industry. Our product Bone Ash MC is especially developed for this industry. Bone Ash MC is a fine powder that works as a superior protective coating for castings of aluminum, refined copper and copper alloy. Bone Ash MC is also extremely suitable as a protective coating for launders and molds. The bone ash prevents launders from early wearing and cracking and increases – often doubling – their life expectancy. It is also used as an easy-release agent, as it prevents metal from sticking to the surface of the molds and makes it easier for manufacturers to remove cast parts.
The non-ferrous metals casting industry also depends on our technical gelatin. Metal refiners use our technical gelatin, or bone glue, as an essential aid for the process of electrolysis. Applying technical gelatin to the refinement of copper, zinc, cadmium and other non-ferrous metals results in a purer product.
